I have Yamaha RX-v867 receiver which accepts a audio pin for the subwoofer. I also have onkyo speakers with a subwoofer. The subwoofer accepts a speaker wire.

The problem is how do i connect the other end of the speaker wire (from the subwoofer) to the receiver which only accepts a audio pin

you can't
the audio out of the receiver needs to go to a Y cable
The Y cable will split the signal, one for the existing sub
and another for a power amp, to drive the onkyo speakers.
You need another power amplifier to do this.
